Circles Over Bubbles
by Michael A Blanchette
Jordan Pond is located in Acadia National Park, near Bar Harbor, Maine. The pond is flanked to the west by Penobscot Mountain and to the northeast by two mountains known as the Bubbles. This photo is a composite image that includes a 132 minute star trail (created from 22 frames), plus a long exposure to bring out details in the icy foreground. Ice chunks cover the foreground, with the lip-shaped Bubble Mountains visible in the distant background.
Equipment: Nikon D810 with Nikon 14-24mm Lens
